A quick response:

Read the email before responding please. My question was, if the chairs have already decided that we are moving forward with the current process (Option 1 from the poll), then why are we wasting time discussing our responses to the poll?

The stated goal of tomorrow's meeting is to focus "on the recently completed poll and is intended to help the chairs, management team, and the committee more thoroughly understand and appreciate the results.  It is intended to be a brainstorming session in which comments are solicited to help us understand why members voted as they did."  If the Chairs have already determined how the group is to proceed then why have we wasted an entire week discussing this process?  It all seems like a waste of time and disingenuous.
